chess.com ads are covering up my live game!

    I'm fine with chess.com displaying ads--you have to make money to provide a service. HOWEVER....Popping up an ad *ON TOP OF THE LIVE GAME I AM PLAYING, SUCH THAT I CAN NO LONGER SEE THE BOARD* is completely, totally, reprehensibly beyond the pail. Today this happened about 5 times for about 5 seconds each time. Chess.com has competitors, and if this problem is not fixed I will stop patronizing chess.com in a heartbeat. Yes, I know I was shouting with all caps a moment ago, but I need to shout--this message has to get through to the site owners so they can correct this problem.

    Site admins, please update this thread when you have fixed the problem so that I will know I can start playing here again.

    Use AdBlock. It works miracles.

    Site administrators still have not responded, so I am continuing to boycott live chess here in chess.com. 

    Site admins - I am willing to return to live chess here on chess.com once you have assured me that ads will no longer obscure my board while I'm playing. Care to respond? Thanks in advance.

    Seems pretty reprehensible.  Blocking the view of the chessboard with an ad would stop me playing pretty fast too.

    out of genuine curiosity, who are the other competitors?is it chesscube.com or the ICC?Something similar to chess.com?

    hi hboson - I am now a regular at freechess.org. I'm still willing to come back and play live chess at chess.com if this ad problem can be fixed

    Is the ad bug we had here still affecting you, chrisfalter?

    Hi Piotr - Haven't tried, because I was waiting for a notification that the bug was fixed. Since you're telling me it has been, I'll give it a try soon. Thanks!

    Yes I am getting ads popping up replacing my live game in Safari 7.0.5 - literally loading a new page.  Very annoying.
